Waltzingmouse Sneak Peek - Day 3 Bountiful Baskets Additions

Good day! It sounds like you are enjoying the sneaks so far.... Are there any of the new Waltzingmouse sets that you just HAVE to have? LOL! I am so grateful for all your comments - thank you so much - each one is so very special and makes me feel all warm and happy!

Make sure you travel around to everyone on the design team!! They have some awesomeness you won't want to miss!! 

Today I am previewing Bountiful Baskets Additions. Additions to what? you might ask yourself..... Well, it is a match up to our previous set called  "Spring Baskets"! Isn't that clever of Claire?! She really is amazing!

For my first card, I used the gingerbread men/ladies - aren't they cute? My basket is green to go with Christmas, of course and the gingerbread and candy are all comfie cozy in their surroundings.....

I found some doilies this week in a pile of stuff under some stuff on a corner of my desk and really wanted to incorporate them into my card and it worked yay!

The sentiment is from Very Vintage Christmas and I used two little doo-dads from the same set on either side of the sentiment!

The second card is not as fussy, but still elegant in it's own way - 

Using my funky sewing machine and my scoreboard, I was able to make some unique borders surrounding the basket of poinsettias! 

I coloured the flowers and then cut them out and popped them up, folding in the leaves just slightly to add some depth. I added a few little gems  to finish it off and sparkly fun!!

I'll be back tomorrow with my blog waltz creation!!
